See below: Psychotherapy is the treatment of choice to explore and resolve underlying issues and develop coping skills. Also, explore potential benefit of emotional freedom technique (eft, aka tapping. Check it out at www.Eftuniverse.Com). I also encourage clients with anxiety to take on relaxation &/or mindfulness meditation.

Panic help: Get the anxiety and phobia workbook by bourne and work through the exercises he provides. That may or may not be sufficient. Seeing a qualified anxiety disorders therapist (phd or msw) may also allow you to overcome panic without medication.
